Protection Systems / OEM specific Protection Systems

The high expectations of our customers provide the incentive for our activities

Our major OEM customers have very specific requirements to ensure over speed protection and other trip criteria for their rotating equipment and turbomachinery, such as turbines, compressors, and expanders.

Our high level of development competence and the close partnership with our customers ensure that those requirements are implemented perfectly. Therefore we produce OEM-specific protection systems with the highest standards.

BRAUN Protection Systems with their TMR architecture monitor equipment relevant to security, such as can be found in the power generation industry, and thereby guarantee its trouble free operation. Our globally unique and true 2oo3 architecture – for each trip criterion within each Monitor – delivers the best protection and avoids unnecessary trips with simultaneously maximum availability of the machine. Many different function tests are implemented while the monitored machinery is in operation.
